This Sand is made of Stars, this Sea is made of Pearls - Horizon Historiographies


This exhibition presents the work of 39 VCUarts Qatar alumni, with curatorial assistance from three Art History graduates, all of whom now enjoy success in their respective fields. Currently spread over the globe, this space reunites them as they celebrate 25 years of the University’s creative existence in Qatar.

The works you see here are visionary and immersive, moving and reflective. They echo the restless, rhythmic movement of Qatari people as they traveled over the sands and seas in search of hidden treasures. They draw inspiration from the past, yet project new horizons that use new technologies and methods to envision a future of hope and creative excellence.

Based on the common themes that are found within each work, the exhibition develops across four chapters:
The Sacred
The Water (Sea)
The Land (Sand)
The Self & The Other
